French leader of professional knives

FISCHER-BARGOIN, based in Thiers, Central France, is a company specialised in manufacturing professional cutlery and sharpening steels. The know-how of its Thiers-based manufacturing and the quality of its blades has raised the reputation of Bargoin knives and Fischer steels amongst professionals. The innovation and modernisation of our production tool have been at the heart of the family business for the last six generations, so that we can offer high-precision tools. In that way, our range – which was initially aimed at the meat trade – has been widened over the years to cover other areas of food processing: bakery, pastry, fish, cheese, and catering, and it has placed FISCHER-BARGOIN, the only manufacturer of sharpening steels in France, amongst the leaders of professional knife-making.

Lionel Raynaud - CEO.



For the last 160 years, the FISCHER-BARGOIN company has perpetuated tradition from an ancestral know – how to a strong local activity that dates back over 6 centuries . Modernisation and automation of our production park, associated with the expertise of our employees has contributed to our excellence. Installed in the the THIERS industrial basin since 1859, our family company which is on a human scale , finds it very important to work and collaborate with the local craftsmen and industries in the region. The « Made in France » stamping on our products guanrantees the manufacturing origin. From industrial processing on the blades of our knives and sharpening steels, to plastic handle injection on all our articles, our principle is to master each step in the manufacturing process.
